The legacy of 2012

2012 was an exciting year for sport with athletes heading down to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games such as wheelchair racing star Calderdale's Hanna Cockroft who carried the Olympic Torch through Leeds on her way to grabbing two gold medals. See the West Yorkshire 2012 Olympians and Paralympians. This Olympic year also saw the launch of the School Games as part of Places People Play, the National Olympic legacy programme, and WYSport is looking forward to delivering the 2013 School Games and Paragames to the county's schools through the School games Organiser SGO networkSafeguarding children in Sport is massively important, and we have attained the gold standard for our child protection. The West Yorkshire sports partnership is the wider network of education, health and leisure organisations tasked with making sport and physical activity part of our lives.
